Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Police Grant Report (3 Feb 2010)

Paul Truswell: My right hon. Friend is talking about other ways for police forces and authorities to raise revenue. Did his Committee look at the possibility of giving police authorities greater powers to raise the full cost of policing major events such as music festivals and large sporting fixtures?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Police Grant Report (3 Feb 2010)

Paul Truswell: My right hon. Friend will be aware that the Government improved the funding formula for West Yorkshire police. Nevertheless, it is still £18 million adrift of the figure it would get were it fully funded. Will he and his colleagues consider how police authorities such as West Yorkshire can bridge that gap, so that they can continue to enjoy record levels of police officers and the subsequent...

Holocaust Memorial Day: Leeds City Council Bill (28 Jan 2010)

Paul Truswell: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. I do not intend to detain the House with a very long speech. I hope that even the most assiduous students of the Bill will now be satisfied that it addresses a major abuse of the peddling laws in Leeds, while not affecting the ability of genuine pedlars to continue to ply their trade. In a previous debate, I gave the example of one of...

[Mr Mike Hancock in the Chair] — Leeds (UK Economy) (20 Jan 2010)

Paul Truswell: I congratulate my constituency neighbour, my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, West (John Battle), on securing this debate. To a great extent, I shall follow what was said by my great friend, my hon. Friend the Member for Elmet (Colin Burgon). The pair of us sometimes feel as though we have been consigned to the Jurassic Park wing of new Labour-[Interruption]-and perhaps my hon....

West Yorkshire Police (Funding) (6 Jan 2010)

Paul Truswell: On that point, I think that most people, irrespective of whether they live in West Yorkshire, believe that if the police, the Crown Prosecution Service and the Court Service have recovered assets in an area, the money should go back into the area, both to fund the capacity to raise even more, and to reward the people there for their efforts.

West Yorkshire Police (Funding) (6 Jan 2010)

Paul Truswell: As I was saying in this soap opera before I was so rudely interrupted, the Government have already announced that they expect council tax increases to be below 3 per cent. for 2010-11. The West Yorkshire force must therefore make savings of £10 million to cope with those expected increases and the challenge provided by all the other measures that I have referred to. The Chancellor's...

West Yorkshire Police (Funding) (6 Jan 2010)

Paul Truswell: It is a pleasure, Mr. Cummings, to serve under your watchful eye. Hon. Members are often accused of special pleading in such debates, but I believe that what I am about to say does not amount to special pleading. All that I ask my hon. Friend the Minister and his Home Office colleagues to do is to fund West Yorkshire to the extent suggested by their funding formula. Progress made with local...

West Yorkshire Police (Funding) (6 Jan 2010)

Paul Truswell: I thank my right hon. Friend and neighbour for his comments. I agree wholeheartedly with what he said and thank him for his accolade. I have been accused by some people of having been "bobbied", which is a reference to those who at one time were hostile to the police and who have now been taken very gently under their wings. If that was put to any of the officers whom I mentioned earlier,...

Olympics: Energy National Policy Statements (9 Nov 2009)

Paul Truswell: Can my right hon. Friend give an assurance that the NPSs before us today have been fully assessed for their carbon impact, so that they transmit a clear message to the IPC about the need to meet national climate change targets and priorities?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Higher Education (3 Nov 2009)

Paul Truswell: Is my right hon. Friend aware that Leeds university is planning to shed 700 staff? What impact does he fear that that might have on its ability to meet the objectives that he has so lucidly and eloquently outlined in his statement?

Perpetuities and Accumulations Bill [ Lords]: Antisocial Behaviour (2 Nov 2009)

Paul Truswell: Does my right hon. Friend accept that some of the families about which he is talking are inflicting huge damage on their communities through other criminal activity, as well as antisocial behaviour? They are often pursued by the police through the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. Does he understand the concern of some forces, such as West Yorkshire, that an inadequate proportion of the money...

Pudsey (Transport) (28 Oct 2009)

Paul Truswell: It is a pleasure to serve for the first time under your watchful eye, Dr. McCrea. It is in the nature of Westminster Hall debates that Members take on the role of parliamentary Oliver Twists in pleading with Minsters, "Please Sir-or Madam on some occasions-can I have some more?" I regret that I do not intend to depart from that noble tradition, but I appreciate how tall an order it is in the...

Appointment of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Planning: National Policy Statements (20 May 2009)

Paul Truswell: I do not intend to detain the House for too long, because my hon. Friend the Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) admirably enumerated all the reasons why the House should support the amendment in his name and the names of colleagues such as me. Throughout discussion of the Planning Bill—or the Planning Act 2008, as it is now—I said that my starting point was to apply one...

Appointment of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Planning: National Policy Statements (20 May 2009)

Paul Truswell: I do not think that there has been any suggestion in today's debate that the role of the Select Committee is not crucial. The point is that the Select Committee, like a Public Bill Committee, should scrutinise an NPS in detail and then bring it to the House for a substantive vote, in much the same way as we do with Bills. My hon. Friend should rest assured—I hope she agrees—that NPSs can...

Appointment of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Planning: National Policy Statements (20 May 2009)

Paul Truswell: Will my hon. Friend explain how she feels the amendment tabled by our hon. Friend the Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) and others would lead to any undue delay? I am slightly perplexed by that suggestion; perhaps I have misconstrued what she is saying.

Appointment of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Planning: National Policy Statements (20 May 2009)

Paul Truswell: This process will obviously be kick-started by a significant number and range of national policy statements. Are the Minister and Select Committee Chairs confident that they have the logistical capacity to be able to deal with that initial major amount of work?

Appointment of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Planning: National Policy Statements (20 May 2009)

Paul Truswell: A few minutes ago, my hon. Friend said that the relevant Minister would review the draft national policy statement in the light of public consultation and the views of the Select Committee. If I recall things correctly, he used the words "resolutions of this House." Could he be a bit more specific about what he might mean by that? Within what parameters will we be working, in terms of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Canterbury City Council Bill, Leeds City Council Bill, Nottingham City Council Bill and Reading Borough Council Bill (21 Apr 2009)

Paul Truswell: Does the hon. Gentleman not accept that the main motivation for the negotiations between officers from Leeds and himself is to remove his obstructions and the tactics that he employs?

Stafford Hospital (1 Apr 2009)

Paul Truswell: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing a debate on such a crucial issue. Besides the invaluable service that he is performing on behalf of his constituents who are directly affected by the catastrophic events at Stafford hospital, does he also appreciate that patients around the country want reassurance that what happened there will not and cannot be repeated anywhere else?

[John Bercow in the Chair] — National Dementia Strategy (1 Apr 2009)

Paul Truswell: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing a debate on such a crucial issue. Is it not also vital that, at the moment and in the future, we adopt a much more robust inspection regime to ensure that staffing levels are adequate to meet the needs now of people living with dementia, that in due course staff are properly trained and that issues such as the abuse of anti-psychotic drugs can be...
